Cover of EPSRC Research Outputs Report 2016

A new EPSRC report, Research outputs 2016 (PDF 10MB), provides an overview of data gathered by EPSRC through researchfish® (an online web-based system for reporting UK research outcomes), supplemented with data and information from other sources.

The report highlights the significant contribution made by EPSRC-funded researchers to global knowledge, and demonstrates that engineering and physical sciences research delivers impacts across a wide range of sectors including energy, digital communications, healthcare, environment, aerospace, manufacturing, transport and the creative industries.

The data shows impressive levels of results:

  • over 100,000 publications;
  • £6.5 billion of further funding leveraged by grants worth £2.3 billion;
  • over 900 examples of policy influences;
  • 548 spin-out companies created of which 80 per cent are still active.

The outcomes and impacts data highlighted in the report will contribute to the overall understanding of the value of investing in engineering and physical sciences for the UK.
